Bespoke ornament of a Great Tit made for me by Emily after I saw her bird-themed wedding cake toppers. This was my third order from her, and once again, I received fantastic service and a beautiful finished item. Emily provided regular updates on progress and expected dispatch and sent photos, and the bird arrived securely packaged inside a gift box. The markings are exquisite. Thank you!

A perfect representation of my wonderful conure. I really don't know how she does it. Beautiful! Recommended!

About

Hand Made from Start to Finish...

For as long as she can remember, all Emily ever wanted to do was draw, paint and create. Charming Creatures is her way of expressing her creative urge to make beautiful things. Emily relishes the fact that each one of her ornaments or hanging decorations are made with the greatest care and a little piece of her heart goes into each one.

The natural world gives her an abundance of inspiration for her work, which is why nearly all her models are based on animals. Making plasticine models from a young age, sat at her grandparent's kitchen table was where it all began. And walks in the woods with her family allowed her to take in the beauty of the natural world and explore its wonders.

Emily was often in trouble for secretly keeping frogs, newts, snails and the odd baby bird in her bedroom as a child. And although her fascination for wildlife has never gone away, nowadays she limits herself to keeping only canaries, quails and doves, instead of frogs and snails.

Emily's favourite animals are birds, the wild creature that is the most accessible to our eyes and ears. We feed them and tame them and think we know them... and yet they inhabit a world which is really rather mysterious.

    It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. The greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living. - David Attenborough
